Winter is coming! We’re obsessed with how the change in seasons can dramatically and drastically alter the look of a place. Take waterfalls, for example. They go from abundant, ever-flowing streams to a solid chunk of ice frozen in time. For inspiration, we look up to these 500px photographers, who bundled up and captured these almost-unreal images of frozen waterfalls around the world.

From North America’s Niagara Falls to Goðafoss in Iceland—scroll down and cozy up to these spectacular snow-capped waterfalls!
